Racuszki are pancakes made from batter fried on a hot griddle or a pan. They are a traditional Polish dish, but they exist in several variations in many different local cuisines, such as Danish [1]. Usually the form varies from small pancakes or something akin to donuts, and the filling can change as well (e.g. apple and cinnamon, raisins, etc.).

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. In large bowl, mix the baking soda, salt, and flour together well.
  2. Add sour milk and eggs, and mix until smooth.
  3. Pour small ladlefuls of the mixture into a non-stick pan, one at a time OR dip slices of peeled apples in batter and put them in the pan.
  4. Cook until the edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • Serve with sugar, butter, maple syrup, melted chocolate, or jam. Sugar is traditional, and some people eat them without toppings.
  • Racuszki do not store well.
  • Use yogurt or cultured buttermilk if you do not have sour milk, but do not replace it with normal milk.
  • Cooking apples are preferred, if using.
